Moonlight Reader
OMG, thank you for doing this!
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
A random act of selfishness -- glad it's helpful to others as well! FWIW, this is as far as I've read to date -- end of chapter 3. (Which means, so far he's mentioned a staggering average of 21 books per chapter ...)
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
FYI: I'm going to curtail this list at the books mentioned in chapters 1-5 and start a new one from chapter 6 onwards -- it'll just get too unwieldy otherwise!
Murder by Death
I'll try to update the records that have missing covers and tidy where needed. This is an incredible effort and a lot of work (as we both know) - it's very appreciated. :)
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
No problem -- and FYI, I did end up doing the prelims on Helen Simpson, disentangling the Detection Club member from the writer born in the 1950s and adding a bio for the Detection Club writer (who was of Aussie origin, incidentally).
Murder by Death
HA! That answers the question I cross posted to the other list. :D

And yes, I used the NLA for source links for most of the old editions for her books.
Person Of Interest
Thanks again, Themis.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
You're very welcome! I knew I would end up doing this before I'd even started reading the book (sigh).
